Default Hyundai Sonata-based stretch-limo in Mumbai

Imagine a white twenty-three-foot long stretch-limo based on a Hyundai Sonata.
There's only one in India if the Times of India is to be believed.

Has anyone seen this in Mumbai?

Another one I know is being constructed in Delhi right now. It's a golden coloured V6.

I thought it was seized as no RTO permission was taken for modifications

It's not the only stretch limo I'm sure of that. The other day I saw an old, badly maintained white one that looked like a Lincoln. Also there's that stretch Volvo that used to be given for TV shoots, tourists etc.

Smile Pics please

Hi,
If anyone has seen this car, kindly post pics of the same here. It will be good to see this cars on road.

I guess if the vehicle is registered then there should not be a problem. But the rules of RTO say that, any vehicle cannot be just modified and ridden on the road. this is required a rule because otherwise people may modify 2 wheelers into 4 wheelers!!!!

This came in Mumbai Mirror too a few days back and the owner had mentioned that due to the change in dimensions, he needed a letter from the manufacturer for RTO clearance and he was expecting it soon from Hyundai Korea.
